Exclamation Wild life on the plantation

Questions are coming in regarding the wild life in the South Carolina "low country." As with any rural location, it is important that we all keep an eye out for animals crossing a grass runway or around the plantation. It is a farm environment with horses, dogs and deer.

Alligators. I called the property owner and asked him about alligators. He assured me there aren't any in the fishing pond that it adjacent to the runway. Lots of bass though! You can keep what you catch and cook them up if you'd like too.

As always, at any airport that is rural or urban, keep your eyes open and be watching for potential hazards. This often goes without saying, but if you have questions, please ask.

When coming in after landing look for a golf cart with a volunteer wearing a safety vest. I know this kind of fly out may be new to many here, but I think it can be done safely we can all have a lot of fun at the same time.

Keep the questions coming! Send a private message or post here.
